BBC: Titanium teacher cycles to Geneva

Quote:
A teacher who claims to have more metal in his head than anyone else in Europe after a skiing accident, is planning a fundraising bike-ride to Switzerland.

Gavin Rees from Milford Haven, west Wales, underwent 19 hours of surgery to rebuild his face after falling 200m while on a 'difficult' run in the Alps.
I guess he has to cycle to Geneva because he could't pass airport security.

But to survive a 200 meter fall, that is amazing.

Programmable Beverage Containers

Finally...I've been waiting for this.

Programmable Beverage Containers
Quote:
Surface buttons on bottles release colors, flavors, fragrances, and one or two doses of caffeine.



Ipifini's Programmable Liquid Container technology employs buttons on the container's surface that release additives (flavors, colors, fragrances) into the liquid. Additive buttons allow for the consumer to choose variations of the liquid in the container at the point of consumption. For example, a programmable cola bottle with buttons for lemon, lime, vanilla, and cherry flavors as well as a caffeine button allows for thirty-two potential choices of soda. A programmable paint container with twenty pigment additive buttons allows the consumer to choose from one million colors.

"Providing choice at the point of consumption creates tremendous advantages for the consumers as well as the manufacturer," noted co-inventor Glenn Wachler.

8 year old School Kid accused of sexual harassment

Article


Watch out, you never know when you are going to be sexually harassed by a 8 year old boy O.o

Really, Sorry this was so Crazy and extreme, I had to post it for the life of me I cant belive a teacher... would make a 8 year old sign something like that I've read alot of Crazy things, but this is laughable in my opinion.

A few comments from a the poster there.

"Fire every teacher involved"

"A world gone mad"

"Its great that the rest of the world get to see what life is like in the US"


Anyway.. I wonder what others would of done if they were the teacher involved in a situation like that? was the school a little Extreme with the way they dealt with the situation?

The whole PC (politically-correct) / equality has gone overboard in the West. No wonder many boys drop out of school and don't bother with high school or college, they took the hint that the system was screwed up even at the early age of eight!

The problem is many of these boys will then proceed through life without much of an education (yes a screwed up PC-education may be better than no education at all). In 20 years' time the West will be populated by uneducated boorish men and overeducated (albeit mostly with Women's Studies and other unpractical subjects) PC women who will then complain what ever happened to all the nice guys and chivalry and why are there so many rapists around? Well, sisters, castrating the boys even before they get a chance to even grow a d*ck and what you have is a self-fulfilled prophecy that yes men will become violent animals precisely because the system made them that way.

Then onward to the downfall of the West as these overeducated women would rather die childless than have to interact with all the new animal men that were produced, and then the old Patriarchy in the immigrant communities and third world countries with their tried-and-tested Lineage System and F*ck if my son ever would become a Wimp would easily out-populate the more liberal communities. They will then take over government and society.

Thus in the near future, Patriarchy will definitely make a comeback. It's really sad though that whatever progress has been made in women's rights would be hindered by a simple formula of Darwinian population / reproduction processes.

So when it was the other way round did women run around raping all the men?

I personally think it's a bit silly to accuse kids of this kind of thing. Most of them probably don't even know what sexual harassment means at that age.

I work at a children's photography studio, and I get grabbed in weird places by kids all the time. But do I think of it as harassment? No. The other day a one-year-old boy was crying and when I went to pick him up he reached out and grabbed wherever he could get to. Unfortunately that place happened to be my chest. So should I say that one-year-old was harassing me? Of course not. That would just be stupid.

What I worry about more is the parents accusing ME of harassment. When I'm posing the kids for the pictures I usually try to just tell them what I want them to do first. But sometimes they won't listen to that so I have to go move them myself. Sometimes the parents will freak out and be like, "Don't you touch my child! I'LL do it!" Which really irritates me because I wonder what they think I'm going to do and plus they usually pose them wrong anyway and I have to sit there and walk them through it since they won't let me do it myself. It takes forever. I mean, really people. Just because I move your kidís arm doesnít make me a child molester.

I just think a lot of people are over-sensitive and paranoid these days. They read too much into everything. You really have to be careful about what you do because you never know who is going to turn around and try to sue you for it.

That sucks!, and come one too, I've seen some of the photo's of you in the "post your picture thread" ^^ You definally dont have any ~scary/shady look going on. Your photo are quite nice, and I dont think a normal! person, would think you of any wrong doing in such a job. Athough its good that people are more attentive to look after children, alot of people give you evil looks no-matter what >.>

Whatever happened to trust? As in, adults can be trusted (usually)? Children also need casual physical contact from community adults--whether relatives, teachers, or any place of business children frequent. I can almost guarantee if these 'do not touch my child' extremeness continues for another generation, chimpanzees in zoos will be far more healthy psychologically than the majority of western kids.

If a cute/sexy guy does it, it's called making contact.
If a unsexy guy does it, it's called sexual harrassment.

Well, thank you for the support. I don't think it's me in particular, though. There are parents who are just way too overprotective. It's good to have concern for your children, but there are lines that shouldn't be crossed, too!

I agree. If they grow up around that kind of behavior they're going to start avoiding people like the plague. And when they get older I'd imagine it'd be harder to have any sort of intimate relationship because all their life it's been "No touchy!!!" It's sad...

I posted a similar one that happened..here is the post:

Quote:
A boy at Downey Elementary in Brockton, Mass., has been suspended for sticking his fingers in a girl's waistband. The boy's mother, Berthena Dorinvil, says she "screamed' when she heard about the disciplinary action.

Dorinvil says the boy is just six and has no idea what sexual harassment means. Dorinvil says her son wanted to know if the police were going to take him away.

Dorinvil says the children were playing on the floor and touching each other. She says her son touched the girl's shirt, but not her skin.
Llama, I agree with your observations, this are just kids and they are really just being, what they are Kids that donít know what they are doing.

Mom dies after child's 911 call treated as a prank

Oh the coup d'grace reading this news somewhere else where some 911 operator says: "we wonder why kids have access to phones." Uh sure. Kindergarteners own mobile phones. Hello~? Welcome to the 21st century!?

Should be at the very least, FIRED.

The sad part is having read it completely, that dispatcher will come off clean from this incident since they're union and probably just get tossed over to another unit. I guess it's not their job to treat every call as serious no matter what the incident in order to ensure safety.

Hopefully the kid doesn't end up messed up towards delinquency from this.

Did they fear that they would be traumatized after seeing the film?

No, they were worried about a spate of copy-cat crimes ...
